Ideas for deep pantry

My camper has a pantry that has shelves in it. It is really deep and somewhat narrow. Iím wondering what people do when they have one like this. Stuff in the back is really bad to reach plus everything in front of it has to be taken out, which is annoying. Anyone have any tips or tricks on how to use it?

I made some "shelves" and mounted them on drawer slides then put them on the pantry shelves. They then slide out allowing you to get to the back items easily. My wife loves them because it makes the pantry much more usable. I did put a lip on the shelf to keep items from falling off.

Can you by chance post a picture of the final product?

I made drawers and what I call a 1/2 shelf for our '13 Forest River Vengence toy hauler.

Been in the cabinet trade for 50 year and the roll out shelves are the best solution. I have seen different ideas for pantrys over the years but adj. roll out are the best solution that I like.

Try this link. I'm going to do the same in our new seasonal unit. We had these in our previous trailer and it was very handy.

Our 2011 Georgetown has a pantry that's around 20" deep with 12"x12" openings for all three cubbies. The DW's solution was pull out wire racks that are almost the full depth of the cabinet. They are width adjustable and I needed to build up the cabinet floors to allow the baskets to clear the front lip of the openings. The wire racks are not on bearings but fit into "C" shaped rails mounted to the cabinet floor. The added friction of the rail system keeps the drawers from coming out when driving.

That looks like exactly what I need. It doesnít look too hard to do either.

On our last TT we had the same deal. Surprised that closet maid had wire sliding baskets that fit perfect side to side. It was easy to screw the slide rails down to the shelves. Just make sure the shelves are secured.

When we owned our Forest River Solera, our pantry was 20" deep. We added pullout racks that we purchased from the Container Store online. We really liked the modification! I added some 'rubber' shelf liner because things wanted to slide on the chrome finished racks.

DH made some slide out shelves for ours. We have some small plastic crates we found at WM on some and some wine boxes we got from Sam's for the others. That way, things don't fall off and when we unpack all we have to do is lift out the crates and take them out of the rv.

These are so cool! I will have the same issue when we pick up our seasonal TT in June. Deep, narrow pantry shelves. My plan was just to get some sliding plastic or wire containers that fit the narrow shelf, 2 to a shelf. Then you can just pull the front one out and set it on the island next to the pantry. but these sliding shelves would be wonderful. Just don't know if we are handy enough to do them ourselves. I still need to measure the shelving and don't have access to the trailer which is about 1500 miles away so will have to wait until June.

Sorry for the delay,
The tray system is supported on 4 post cut from a 2x2 cedar baluster at a height to clear the front cabinet frame, a 3/8" hole was drilled through the 4 post and through the existing cabinet shelf. Using a 3/8" bolt & wing nut the tray is secured to the cabinet's bottom shelf. The wing nut allows greater surface for support compared to the traditional washer/nut combo. The tray has friction slides so it doesn't move when retracted.
Hope this helps.
